Media reviews

"Heinrich is a wonderful writer – a gifted naturalist with a great love for his study objects who has mastered the detailed physiological analyses and who is himself an excellent experimental scientist. This is a great book."
- Bert Holldobler

"From one man's persistent and elegant probing of the temperature biology of bees, we have been led to a deeper understanding of the whole biology of many insect taxa, and of their interactions with ecological and environmental stresses: all who work at the interfaces of physiology, ecology and behaviour have cause to be grateful, and all should certainly read this book."
- Trends in Ecology & Evolution

"An outstanding source of information, and can be read with profit and satisfaction by the professional biologist and interested amateur alike."
- Nature
